hi:
here is what I want to do:

-->i want my Java client code to log into a Yahoo internet group that I have set up. It contains some XML files.

-->I then want to to be able to download those XML files to the client computer.

I have tried using HttpClient (a Jakarta project) but it seems that logging into Yahoo is problematic (understandably so) with all the re-directs that take place.

I am new to Java and that surely does not help as well. Are there some Java classes that perhaps might help me? Also, how can I simulate this logging in process without being rejected by Yahoo?

Thanks

Concerning interacting with a web site, I suggest you mosey on over to the Sockets and Internet Protocols forum.

I am new to Java and that surely does not help as well.

Here is a list of free on-line Java tutorials and books that I have found useful:
  • Sun's Java Tutorial
  • Introduction to Computer Science using Java by Bradley Kjell
  • Introduction to Programming Using Java by David J. Eck
  • Dick Baldwin's Java Programming Tutorials
  • Interactive Programming In Java by Lynn Andrea Stein
  • Bruce Eckel's Thinking In Java
  • JavaRanch's own Campfire Stories
  • Allen B. Downey's How To Think Like A Computer Scientist

  • Also, how can I simulate this logging in process without being rejected by Yahoo?

    For that, I'd suggest moseying on over to the Testing forum, where you might want to ask a question about developing against a remote service with Mock Objects.
